Aldersly Prioritizes Social Connections Amidst Loneliness Epidemic

10/22/2023 | News | Reading Time 2 Minutes

The U.S. Surgeon General has declared loneliness and isolation to be a public health epidemic. The advisory asserts that social connections significantly improve both individual and community health and well-being. For older adults, connections and community are as important to survival as food and water. There is no evidence of a loneliness epidemic at Aldersly Retirement Community in downtown San Rafael where every day residents in retirement stroll the scenic gardens, participate in bocce ball, gather for oyster tastings, attend musical performances, enjoy outdoor adventures and support cultural events. Decades before the digital age, Aldersly's founders built the community on principles of social connection and community. Aldersly's transformative power is woven into its fabric. Residents work together to end isolation, strengthen relationships and show hospitality and interest in visitors and one another. Aldersly has been described as a place where there is a friend behind every door.
